Like its attractions and sights, Samara‘s accommodation is scattered throughout the city. Much of it lies either close to the promenade and along the length of the Volga River, or towards the train station. Here are our top picks on where to stay when visiting Russia‘s city gateway to the Volga region.

Close to Samara beach and an easy stroll to the central sights, Ost-West Club Hotel is in a prime position.
